Comfortable, spacious room, well appointed. Loved the private roomy balcony, and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Very good location that allowed us to access all our activities on foot. Would definitely stay again, and recommend.

Booked this place for 1 night prior to heading up north. Location is about 10 mins walk to Queen Street and the harbour. Transport here was easy with the super shuttle service which got us there in 40 mins in the morning. On arrival the outside and the reception appears to be the standard of a 2-3 european hotel.

This is the perfect place to stay for any event at Vector, which is a very short walk away. It is located between the shops in Queen Street and Vector, so is very central. The entrance is a little gloomy (polished concrete floors) but the staff are attentive and polite, and the checking in and out is well handled. Rooms... More

Excellent location , helpful staff and good clean rooms with all necessary facilities== good value equation Once you've decided against a hotel,... Smart choice!!! Why does my review need to be any longer?!?

Thank Beaumontsan
WaldorfApartments, Public Relations Manager at Waldorf Celestion Apartment Hotel, responded to this review

Thanks for your simple yet succinct review Beaumontsan! We agree, Waldorf Apartments are a great alternative to traditional hotels - separate bedrooms, kitchen and laundry facilities all in wonderful central Auckland locations. We think its a no-brainer! More

We were very pleased with our stay. The apartment was so big and roomy with a balcony on each side (front and back). It had everything you needed, full kitchen and also a washing machine. Very quiet even though in the city, so close to Britomart and Skycity was only a 15 min walk away. Would definitely stay here again.... More
